New Website Design for Ben Hauck online // Alpha Version

Hi again!  My website is back in commission after being down for a week while I was redesigning it (and balancing some other duties).

Now, it’s nowhere near completion but I needed to get it back online.  In particular, what’s missing is my video portfolio, which I still need to rebuild.  I hope to have that up soon, and in the meantime you can check my YouTube channel.

So since there’s still much to do, I’m calling this new design in its “alpha” state.  Please bear with me as I get things functional again!

In the meantime, won’t you
